We have bald eagles around here..but they are not nearly as common as hawks & owls..

My step dad wasn't much of a hunter and fishing to him was only a bit better. So at 5 we moved back to Long Island, stayed there 11 yrs. Summers we'd spend a week at Narrowsberg fishing on the Hudson River, Think that was it. Right across the river from Penn. First hunted deer upstate also. Saw some does but never shot one. Someone mentioned New York City as what people think of as New York, right on the money! Had I grew up up state, I doubt I'd have ever left, absolutely beautiful country. You simply cannot vision up state without seeing it!

As a kid, my parent's used to take us up to Narrowsberg for a week fishing every summer. As an adult I drove trucks interstate for a living. My favorite runs were across upstate NY< beautiful up there. People think of NY and first image come's to mind is NYC. Upstate is a completely different world!

Way back in another lifetime I went to a small college up there....Paul Smith's. That area is an undiscovered gem in America. I can't understand why so many people from NY come to Maine in the summer when they have that in their backyard. Maybe it is just as well for the folks that live up there that the city people do come to Maine. We fleece them pretty good all summer.
The fishing was really good, didn't have much time for hunting, but everything else, including the people were first rate. Try so hard not to let the politicians and out of state money screw thing up like is happening in Maine now. Do everything you can to protect this place, keep developers out, and watch out for tree huggers with bundles of money that want "To Protect" things and keep everyone out except other tree huggers and those that never see the woods except on their computer screen.

I used to live upstate NY but moved to Missouri due to the cost of living in ny is way too much. But everything that was said about NY is true. NY is 3/5ths trees, not all black top. I lived near West Point Military Academy for 40 yrs.

Barred owl on Mt McGregor, Wilton, NY. Where president Grant spent his last days at his cottage.
